Disney has a ton of TV shows and movies available via a variety of streaming services and networks that often involves paying for multiple subscriptions, but the entire catalog of content isn’t possible to view from a single source. This could soon change, though, with news of a new streaming service called Disney+ run by none other than Disney itself.
After years of rumors, Disney’s CEO Rob Iger told investors that Disney would launch its streaming subscription service in late 2019. With Disney already known to be pulling its Marvel content from Netflix next year, it’s likely that Disney+ will become the only source to watch the various Marvel TV shows at.
In other news, Iger also confirmed that Lucasfilm was developing a second Star Wars live-action series for the Disney that is set to go into production next year, with Diego Luna reprising the role of Andor that debuted in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. A live-action series centered around Marvel’s Loki, the God of Mischief, is also being assembled.
While the Disney+ streaming service is set to launch in late 2019 in the US, investors will be able to get a sneak peek a few months ahead of the rest of us in April.
